christmas day


This Christmas was different from all the rest.
We were able to spend Christmas morning in our pajamas opening presents and eating a formal breakfast with both sets of our parents.
It was nice for us to have everyone under one roof!


Toward the end of the night some of my favorite little girls (and next door neighbors) came over in their pj's to show me their new American Girl dolls, Julie and Caroline, that Santa brought them.
Santa had informed me in advance they were getting them this year, so my mom brought my American Girl doll, Kirsten, from California so that we could all play together.

I feel like I blinked and Christmas day was over.
And to be honest, although we had a very nice holiday, everything about it exhausted me this year.
